Alchemy is at the heart of the Nairy project. Each work represents reciprocity, duality and harmonious balance. For the creation of each jewel, the creative process combines in perfect symbiosis different elements such as metals (silver, copper and brass), fine stones, natural feathers but also symbols of sacred geometry. Nature is an important source of inspiration.
The Nairy project was born from the continuous exchange of energy, worldview and perspectives between the artists, Awen (Manú Menéndez) et Wayna (Eliz'art). The pieces produced as part of the project reflect the information received and then materialized through art, an manifestation of the relationship that exists between each being and the Universe. Each piece has a unique purpose and meaning.

We walk on this path of creation and inspiration set up by our ancestors using different elements offered by Nature such as fine stones, wood, feathers, etc. They are guides and messengers, symbolizing the Moon, the Sun, the stars, the hills and mountains, the fire and the desert, the rivers and the seas …
